Diabetes, numbness in the tongue, drooling - Online Doctor Chats
Doctor : hi
Doctor : how can I help you?
Doctor : are you with me?
User : My husband is a insulin-dependant diabetic (type 1?). He is having a problem. Last night his tongue went numb and tingly. It is still that way. He can't talk, he drools, when he talks or eats or drinks. All indications are that his blood sugar is low. IN the 17 1/2 years i've known him, he has never ever had a low blood sugar. We tried to check it, but couldn't get enough blood to do so. Any ideas as to what we can do to get this numbness to go away?
Doctor : first check the blood sugar
Doctor : what dose he is taking?
User : I tried. I can't get enough blood. I tried about 10 different times. Now it's too late, he has eaten and drank something.
Doctor : ok
User : He takes apidra (bg -100 divided by 40) and lantus at night, 14 units.
Doctor : same dose for how many years?
